  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    My first whisky after a very long vacation. Now I know what I have been missing!
    Old Glen Grants are usually very good, especially, if they have a strong fruity component. This is a perfect example and it appears to me that 1972 was a very good year for Glen Grants.
    • Nose
      Powerful, aromatic and very fruity - sweet oranges and raisins. I also get dried apricots. Then there are notes of chocolate cookies and forrest honey. Very very tasty.
    • Taste
      Rich, smooth and balanced with strong notes of orange cake, wood and forrest honey. Also reminds me of plum in madeira with almonds and chocolate. Complex and absolutely lovely.
    • Finish
      Very long, becoming really dry with a lovely fruity aftertaste and plenty of tannins.
